The HWE Big Band is an offshoot of the Heisey Wind Ensemble that has presented concert band programs for the past 28 years.  HWE members Randall Lamb, Doug Moran and David DeCarolis felt there was a need for a quality big band in the area and spearheaded the formation of the HWEBB in 2010.  The band gave a well received premier performance at the 2010 Newark Jazz and Ribs Festival and were invited back to perform at the 2011 and 2012 NJ&RF attracting the largest crowds each day.
The band has also performed at the Newark Independence Day Celebration, the Granville "Concert on the Green", a concert at Granville High School, the Licking Valley Jazz Festival and in several concerts at their home in the Reese Center at OSUN. 
HWE Music Director Dr. Russel Mikkelson, Director of Bands at The Ohio State University, leads the
20 member ensemble which has a traditional big band instrumentation of 5 saxophones, 5 trumpets,
5 trombones, rhythm section and vocalist. Membership in the HWE Big Band is drawn from the Heisey Wind Ensemble, which is an audition only group.  Each concert the HWE Big Band gives is prepared and rehearsed specifically for the performance. The HWEBB is thrilled to have had as our guest vocalists Kelly Delaveris, Dwight Lenox, Belinda Paisley and Kelly McLennan.
